Non-Opioid Medication Options
Multiple Northern Virginia Locations for Convenient Opioid-Free Oral Surgery
Fairfax Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is committed to fighting the opioid crisis and provides a non-opioid alternative to manage post-surgical pain.
If you or a family member will be undergoing oral surgery at Fairfax Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, it is natural to worry about pain. It is normal to experience some pain after surgery, however everyone’s experience with pain is different.
We offer a long-lasting pain reliever that is not an opioid and starts working during your surgery before you feel pain.
How is this different than Opioids?
- It works directly at the surgical site, unlike opioids which affect the whole body.
- It controls pain for the first few days after surgery, when you need it most.
- It is proven to help reduce the need for opioids (narcotics).
- It is only 1 dose and administered by your doctor.
